Campbellford Colts Gordie Gilders in Wayne Gretzky’s Commercial!
Submitted By Nancy Boivin on Tuesday, December 24, 2019
It all started when Powerhouse Casting Company was looking for a slim, blonde hockey player to play Wayne Gretzky in a commercial.

With over 50,000 applicants sent into Powerhouse Casting Company,
Gordie worked hard and went to numerous tryouts for the position to play Wayne Gretzky as a young child.
Gordie and his family were very excited & proud after he was chosen for the part!

Campbellford Colts & our home town of Campbellford are very proud
to see Gordie in the Commercial that will be aired on the TV during the World Junior Hockey Game on Boxing Day!

Discover the remarkable true story of Wayne Gretzky

Discover the remarkable true story of Wayne Gretzky meeting his idol, pro hockey player Tim Horton, when he was a little boy. We are honoured to have played a small part in The Great One’s story. #TimsTrueStory #TheBeginningOfSomethingGreat
